There is a team of part-time practice nurses, Sisters Jane Tibble, Janey Carpenter and Sarah England. In addition to all the usual nursing skills they have all undertaken further specialised training in a number of fields and play a key role in the management and treatment of the following:
|Diabetes||Childhood and Adult Vaccinations|
|Hypertension||Foreign Travel Advice and Vaccinations|
|Coronary Heart Disease||Leg Ulcers and Wounds (excluding suturing)|
|COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)||Diet, Weight Control and Exercise|
|Cerebrovascular Disease (Strokes and TIAs)||Ear Syringing|
|Peripheral Vascular Disease|
The practice nurses also carry out new patient, well person and over 75 health checks. Because of the different specialities of individual nurses and length of relevant appointment time required and to avoid a wasted visit, it is important when making an appointment with one of the nurses to state the reason for the appointment.
